Location of artist Ben Eine's alphabet graffiti street

Description: This is where uber-cool graffiti artist 'Ben Eine's' latest installation is - he's coerced the whole street into having their grim metal shutters to be part of his street alphabet.
Real name Ben Flynn, he was born on 23 August 1970 and has become a prolific street artist based in London.
He has also taken his lettering to the streets of Paris, Stockholm, Hastings and Newcastle upon Tyne.
